TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2017 /CNW/ - Guyana Goldfields Inc. (TSX:GUY) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that gold sold for 2016 totalled 156,000 ounces at its Aurora Gold Mine ("Aurora") in Guyana, South America, achieving its upwardly revised production guidance of 140,000 ounces to 160,000 ounces in its first year of commercial production. The Company had a record fourth quarter with respect to both tonnes mined and tonnes milled resulting in 45,500 ounces sold in the period. The month of December was particularly strong with 22,800 ounces sold, a record for the year. Further details are provided in the table below.

Scott A. Caldwell, President & CEO, states, "With commissioning, ramp-up and over a year of operations successfully behind us, Aurora has proven to be a strong, high grade asset with exceptional cash flow generation. The Company has established an excellent environmental, health and safety track record to date and continues to benefit from strong relationships with the local government and communities. I would like to thank the entire team on our significant milestone of achieving production guidance for 2016 and look forward to an equally successful 2017."

Outlook

The Company is well positioned financially to grow near-term production and ramp up exploration with an unaudited cash balance of approximately US$70mln at the end of the year versus a total debt balance of US$80mln. The Company plans to issue an updated NI 43-101 Technical Report Feasibility Study for Aurora later this month reflecting an expansion of the mill from 5,000 tpd to 8,000tpd throughput.

Exploration efforts are expected to ramp up significantly in 2017 with drilling activity to commence at both near mine targets and at the Sulfur Rose deposit (~20km north east of the Aurora Mine) in the first quarter of this year.

The Company's production and cost guidance for 2017 is provided below. Due to mine sequencing gold production is expected to be slightly higher in the second half of the year relative to the first half. Similarly, due to the timing of sustaining capital expenditures, all-in sustaining costs are expected to be higher in the first half of the year relative to the second half. The royalty cost is based on an assumed gold price of $1,200 per ounce.
